Format: Paperback
I got this book wanting to see the lands of Rhun, Far Harad, Beleriand, Valinor, and the other lands not really mapped out in detail in the books. What I found was the entire history of Lord of the Rings in atlas form. Every chapter in the Silmarillion, Hobbit, and LoTR is mapped in detail and explained. Landscape, movements of the servants of Morgoth and Sauron, wars, settlements of elves and men and dwarves, to the world of Tolkien in its entirety from the void, to valinor, to middle earth, to the lands beyond throughout the ages. This is an amazingly detailed atlas of Tolkiens world that any fan would enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Aside from the actual maps drawn or approved by JRR Tolkien in his lifetime, Fonstad's maps are THE primary cartographic source for fans of the books. Additionally, they are by far the most complete and detailed. The maps are not in full color, but in brown, black and shades of gray. In other words, this isn't an art book. It's meant strictly for finding your way through Middle Earth, and in that respect Fonstad is remarkably successful. Her atlas includes both large scale maps of whole regions as well as "blueprints" of all the major buildings (Minas Tirith, Meduseld, etc. right down to the location of every room in Bag End). It also traces the journey of each party in the fellowship as the story progresses. Maps of the first and second age as well as schematic graphical representations of battles are presented (ie invading and defending hosts are represented by arrows). Overall, very helpful and worthy of any serious Tolkienite's library.

Format: Paperback
THIS ATLAS HAS MANY GOOD THINGS TO LOOK AT AND A LOT OF USEFUL INFORMATION. I HAVE LOOKED AT ALL THE MAPS AND READ SOME OF THE BOOK. IT TELLS HOW FAR THEY WENT IN ONE DAY AND ANY IMPORTANT THINGS THAT HAPPENED, ALONG WITH GREAT MAPS. AND THE BATTLE MAPS ARE WONDERFUL WITH DETAILS ABOUT HOW MANY MEN,ELVES,ORCS ECT FOR EVERY BATTLE!! IF YOU WANT A DETAILED MAP ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY, THEN GET THIS BOOK IT IS VERY HELPFUL IN VISUALIZING THE WORLD. TheLoneRoman2002

This is one of the most treasured books i own. While, and after reading Tolkien's books, i found it to be a goldmine of information. This is the only atlas you will need. It is definately worth the money.

Format: Paperback
Then I first heard that JRR Tolkien prided himself in his attention to specific details, I was somewhat skeptical. When I found out that Tokien had drawn his own map of Middle-Earth, I realized that the man was an obsessed freak (but in a good way). The Atlas of Middle-Earth does live up to it's title as an atlas, providing the proper distance scales, descriptions, and directions (Tolkien had even developed unique symbols for north, south, east, and west). Every place mentioned in Tolkien's works is wonderfully explored in this book. From the plains of Mordor to the halls of Bag End. Even the city of Minas Tirith and the volcano Mount Doom are examined. Fans of The Silmarillion will delight in the maps of Valinor. There are even maps tracking the paths of the journeys in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. This book is an excellent addition to the library of anyone who admires and loves the works of JRR Tolkien.

Format: Paperback
If you need some suplement while reading Tolkien, this should be the first thing you get.

The pros :
VERY detailed. On top of the multiples maps, you get text info, which makes it a very relevant guide.

It covers all Tolkien catalog (first, second and third ages).

Contrary to some 'deluxe' LOTR and The Hobbit books, it can fit with ANY edition you have.

The Cons :
The maps a 'dichrome', black and brown. The are still very pretty and you get plans of bulding, caves, etc. I just pointed it out because I know some people only like maps in colours.

What are you waiting for? If you're on this page, it's because you're a tolkien fan (or at least are planning to travel to middle earth for the first time). Amazon has it at a cheap price, and it ships fast. GET IT.

A great choice for the Middle Earth buff who simply cannot get enough detail about Tolkien's universe. I've really enjoyed it so far.

Format: Hardcover
As I said in my subject title, this book is the ultimate companion to the Lord of the Rings saga by JRR Tolkien.
The Atlas goes into immense details of the maps of Tolkien's Middle Earth, highlighting the journeys of Bilbo, Frodo and The Fellowship of the Ring.
It is all done in a very serious, sincere and professional manner, and it is clear that Ms. Fonstad has put a lot of effort into making this book.
But like all works of fiction, there are errors, but there are few to be sure. Where these errors arise, Ms Fonstad has made reasonable assumptions or compromises between the conflicting data, but none of them seriously detract from Tolkien's word in any way. As another reviewer said, this is testament to the creative genius of Tolkien, and his uncanny attention to detail that make the books so believable.
I highly recommend this book to any Lord of the Rings fan, as it is a fascinating book that clarifies the geography of Middle-Earth in a way that has never been done before.
